I’ll have an old fashioned, please!
That’s my signature drink. Without a doubt, unless we’re at a place that has fantastic wine, you betcha I’m ordering an old fashioned.
There’s something about orange and bourbon that just works well together. However, one and half of an old fashioned and I’m out. It’s quite a stiff drink and that simply can’t do for the holidays. I need something a little more tame that will allow me stay awake and be festive and merry with family and friends. This cranberry orange bourbon is my stand-in cocktail this Thanksgiving.
Playing off the orange and bourbon combination, this cocktail combines orange juice with my one of my favorite bourbons EVER, Jefferson’s Reserve. In keeping with the orange theme, I’ve used a simple syrup incorporated with orange peels and ginger. And finally, to top this fabulous cocktail, it will be garnished with dried orange crisps and brandied cranberries. Sound good to you?
